Have you ever sat on the rocks at Hank's Beach and wondered what lies beneath the waves? On November 21st, I did a dive to take a look. This is my first attempt at underwater footage with a GoPro and I have a bit to learn about lighting but I think you will be amazed at the diversity of creatures to be found in a short dive. One that excited me was a Puget Sound King Crab shell that was in deep, dark water. What I didn't see in the dim light was the actual crab just a few feet away. I was sure surprised that I had inadvertently caught it in the video! Keep your eyes open, I slowed the film down at that point.
So cool!

It looks like it was a sunny day -- yes? The colours underwater look quite "brightened." I didn't realize there were so many fish down there, and quite the variety of them.
